“Hi, I’m Dr. Tony Mork, MD, Endoscopic Spine Surgeon, and I have Important Information for Chiropractors…”
Categories: Causes of Back Pain
This 45 year old woman had left low back pain after a motor vehicle accident (rear-ended).
She was treated conservatively with chiropractic and physical therapy for 1 year without relief.
I saw her and performed spinal diagnostics to see if her problem was surgical – It wasn’t !
This month I want to share a case that I saw recently.
It shows how a muscular 44 year-old man woke up partially paralyzed after a C5-6 anterior cervical fusion. (Preoperatively he only had pain).
Another reason to consider foraminal decompression for cervical stenosis instead of a fusion.
